The episode delves into the history of the TV show and its movie follow-ups, its catchy music and how it influenced subsequent films.

We also rank the live action Bruce Banners, boogie on down the disco version of the ‘Lonely Man Theme’ and get baffled by the awful theme to the 1966 cartoon series.

Episode 31: The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth

Tom takes Morgan through the mind of Jim Henson and two of his greatest fantasy movies.

Tom takes Morgan back to the 1980s – when fantasy movies were everywhere and full of animatronics and puppets instead of CGI and green screens.

This episode delves into the brilliant mind of the late, great Jim Henson, and two of his non-Muppet movies: The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. Movies that were not huge successes at the time, but have grown to become cult favourites.

We discuss everything from David Bowie’s bulge, scary bird things and whether pretending you were the baby in Labyrinth wins you any friends at uni.
